Teams are also responsible for completing the ITBL Waiver. This page link has been added which allows you to download a copy of the form that needs signatures prior to the start of the season. This is a PW protected page, I'll pass around to PW to the committed teams once the season starts. Please note, we will be using these waivers as committed rosters for the season and will use to confirm rosters when requested in order to help keep within the Spirit of the ITBL
Wondering where to train for the upcoming season? Contact On Deck Training Center located in Newtown Square, they offer individual and group training as well as rental of their cages. Tell them the ITBL sent you!
ADVANTAGES OF THE ITBL
Flexible scheduling options allow our teams to continue to play in prestigous national, regional and local tournaments while still playing a regular slate of games against nearby competition.
Participating teams are grouped by age (currently 9U - 12U) and placed in divisions ("A" and "B" based on skill level and experience) if needed, to ensure competitive balance.
The league maintains standings and hosts playoffs at the end of each regular season for each division and age level; meaning ITBL games have greater meaning than the typical “friendly scrimmage”
